Default Best design for rear bolsters?

Im planning to make some changes this winter. The biggest chnage is to remove the rear bench and put in drop down bolsters. What is everyone's experience? does someone have a good design idea? If someone has drop down bolsters now, is there somehting you would design differently next time? Could you send pic of what you have?

This boat has an interesting looking setup.

I would like to do something with my backseat too but not enough freeboard for a standup setup.

I like the idea. Wanted to change mine out, but it was too cost prohibitive. You should take a look at how Fountain does their 47 PR with triple bolsters. They add a step system up the middle, so people do not have to step on the upholstry every time they get on / off the back pad.

Check out McLeod Design Group they are in Michigan, they have a triple rear bolster on there web page iv'e seen it on a Sunsation, very nice. Also great people to deal with.
Model TRI-TEC there are some good pictures on there web site, good luck.

Kidding aside.

Find pictures of the cockpit of the Blue F2 Cigarette Top Gun Lucky Strick use to own. That had a sweet three rear bolster set up.

They were keyed also you had to turn yourself into them but once in you were in you were not going anywhere.
